THIS BULB DOES NOT SHIP TO CALIFORNIA. Why?
Design by George Nelson, 1952. Produced by Herman Miller. Handcrafted in Michigan, USA Without question, the Nelson Lantern Bubble Pendant is a tried-and-true standard of the modern vocabulary. George Nelson designed the first lamps in 1952. These lamps, with their simple sculptural shapes, are constructed of an innovative taut plastic that coats a steel wire-frame. Nelson's unique design and ingenious use of materials prove to eliminate glare and provide an abundant, yet diffused light. A quality which alone is unique to this material. From the forming of the wire-frame, to the spraying of the vinyl form, one-by-one, each Bubble Lamp is constructed to last decades and each Bubble Lamp is built to George Nelson's original specifications. These famous lamps are part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Brushed nickel canopy. Each pendant comes with 6 feet of wire that can be field shortened.

George Nelson Bubble Lamps, designed by George Nelson, were introduced in 1952 by Herman Miller, to great acclaim. The quintessentially mid-century modern lamps were originally inspired by Swedish design and are versatile and accessible, highlighting and illuminating interiors. The Bubble Lamps are in MoMA's permanent collection in New York and has ceiling lights, floor and table lamps and wall sconces available.

Lantern Bubble Pendant is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice light, great service The lantern light arrived ahead of schedule, and the packaging was quite secure. We appreciated the full selection of mid-century style lighting available on this website. We're looking forward to installing it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highest quality, beautiful piece We ordered the Lantern Nelson pendant in small to go over our nightstands. We both have a design background and are very picky about lights. This one does not disappoint. Although it's not the popular Saucer model, it's still very Nelson-esque and gives a similar vibe. The material is somewhat malleable - it's fabric so it's not a hard plastic. I know it can be hard to tell if you've never seen it in person. The bottom of the light has a shiny chrome ring. It's packed quite well in the box. The box does say YLighting on the outside and Nelson lamp with an image, so it might not be safe to receive delivery in an environment where thievery might be an issue. The only con is that the suspension wire is not entirely straight out of the box, so it might take time for gravity to work it out into a straight line. Would I buy it again? Of course!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reminiscent of traditional Asian lanterns We like this light because of its Asian-like feel in our Japanese influenced decorated home. We installed it in our entryway and it matches the similar George Nelson light above our dining room table. (full disclosure... I am filling out this review because Y-Lighting offered me a $25 gift certificate for additional purchases)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Product! We have a narrow room that needed a light fixture, so we decided to try the Lantern. Looks great, puts out a surprising amount of light with a 100 watt bulb. Lamp was packed very well, super quick delivery from Y Lighting. Thanks YLighting!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very nice fixture Well made, easy to install, diffuses light nicely. And even though it's open on the bottom, you can't see the bulb (which drives me crazy). One thing about this light: in the photo it looked more chinese lantern-- we still love it, but now that it's hung, we jokingly refer to it as "the air filter."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this fixture The original fixture was damaged upon arrival but Ylighting handled it quickly and painlessly. I received a replacement within a few days. The fixture sits in an awkward narrow stairway leading to a loft space. It adds a bit of interest without overpowering the small space. I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple yet elegant and tres chic! These modern beauties arrived within a week of my ordering them. I hung one over each of my nightstands and they give the room a fresh and modern look, especially paired with my very traditional bed frame. I love the diffuse light they emit...perfect to read by!
